I oversee the Master of Healthcare Administration executive program, the Healthcare Management Certificate, and development of new educational offerings related to healthcare management and leadership. I have designed and instructed health care innovation and service design courses since 2006, and also created and teach a course on climate change and healthcare organizations.

My teaching focuses on providing our next generation of health care leaders with the abilities to make our health care system work better for people who need care. In addition, I also continue to work with health care organizations on how to design and deliver better services for their customers.
